Who’s Right?

The death of a fetus is regarded as a loss but not a capital crime.

—“Abortion is never mentioned” in the Bible—a Christian ob-gyn on why choice is pro-life (Quartz, Apr. 17, 2017)

If men fight and hurt a pregnant woman so that she gives birth prematurely, and yet no harm follows, he shall be surely fined as much as the woman’s husband demands and the judges allow.  But if any harm follows, then you must take life for life,  eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,  burning for burning, wound for wound, and bruise for bruise.

—Exodus 21:22-25 (WEB)
